Learn How to Play the Sicilian Najdorf

sicilian najdorf marian petrovIn this course GM Marian Petrov reveals Kasparov’s entire Sicilian Najdorf repertoire, with updated theory and plans. Add to your 10 hours of high-quality video lessons a complete PGN file of all Sicilian Najdorf games Kasparov ever played and you’re armed with all you need to play confident and aggressive chess with Black… no matter what white tries!


Garry Kasparov sits crouched forward, head in his hands in deep concentration…

His 2650 level opponent is launching pawns forward on the kingside, but Garry is not worried at all… he has seen it all before.

He takes off his watch and places it beside the board with a deep exhale…

Then he reaches out his hand, grabs the rook on c8 and sacrifices it on c3. KABOOM.

A thunderous attack ensues and Kasparov forces resignation on move 30.

Now, we know that Kasparov was one of the most dynamic players ever to live… but without dynamic weapons, even the most dynamic player becomes rather dull.

GM Marian Petrov was asked which was Kasparov’s most deadly opening weapon…

His answer? The Sicilian Najdorf!

If you’re ready to learn the Black repertoire that kept Kasparov at the top for 20 years, grab this course and enjoy.
